Band Insulted, Walks Off Show

Members of the band The Magic Numbers walked out on Top of the Pops after the host referred to them as a "Big Fat Melting Pot". If you met the band members on the street, they would look like normal people. But apparently they are too tubby for Richard Bacon, presenter for the U.K. television program.

Bacon, who's cocaine abuse has gotten him fired from the show in the past, was reportedly "mortified" and insists he was referring to their status, not their size. To add to the insult, The Times article above begins by referring to the band as "Chubby".
